Government:

All public documents to be published in free and open source formats

What

Strictly use free file formats for documents released by all government departments, local government and also public bodies, including responses to freedom of information requests.

Why

The use of proprietory file formats is a barrier to people who do not have the funds to purchase commercial software or people who are not willing to agree to restrictive and often indecipherable software licenses.
